LEARNING WORKS BEST WHEN ALL THE SENSES ARE INVOLVED
We learn by visual, auditory, and kinesthetic means. Traditional methods for learning anatomy emphasize the visual. Using all three modes for learning enhances your learning experience and helps you retain the information.
This CD helps you by providing the auditory component. It can be difficult to learn or memorize the name of a structure if you are not sure how to pronounce it. Pronouncing the words with the CD can help you to learn faster, retain more, and retrieve anatomy names when taking tests. Learning how the words are derived helps in understanding the meaning of the names of the muscles and bones. The background of Superlearning® Music assists in creating an atmosphere for enhanced learning and memorization.
The palpation and stretching exercises on the CD help you feel the muscles on your own or a partner’s body, providing a kinesthetic component. This helps to ground your experience of anatomy in your body. As you know your own body better, you are more effective in working with others.
To integrate this information with the visual component we provide keys (see below) so that you can work with your anatomy book as you are listening to the CD. If your anatomy book is not listed here please contact us and we will create a key for it.
This CD was originally developed to help in the instruction of anatomy at Healing Arts Institute in Roseville, California (near Sacramento). Healing Arts Institute offers training programs in massage therapy and acupressure massage, as well as many continuing education classes and workshops in massage and bodywork. Instructional videos & workbooks on Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, and Sports Massage are also available by calling 800-718-6824 (Toll Free).
Keep in mind that there are many variations in pronunciation of anatomical terms, and there is much acceptance of these variations. Although we have researched the pronunciation of the various terms used on this CD, you may have learned it differently. This, of course is perfectly acceptable, just as long as you recognize us as the ultimate authority. 😉
REFERENCE KEYS FOR EASIER LEARNING
